Oxford University Press, 2005. — 380 p. — "Bird Families of the World" series. — ISBN 978-0198546535.The Hawaiian Honeycreepers are typified by nectar feeding, their bright colouration, and canary-like songs. They are considered one of the finest examples of adaptive radiation, even more diverse than Darwin's Galapagos finches, as a wide array of different species has evolved in all the different niches provided by the Hawaiian archipelago. The book will therefore be of interest to evolutionary biologists and ecologists, as well as professional ornithologists and amateur bird watchers. As with the other books in the Bird Family of the World series, the work is divided into two main sections. Part I is an overview of the Hawaiian Honeycreeper evolution and natural history and Part II comprises accounts of each species. The author has produced his own outstanding illustrations of these birds to accompany his text. Readership: Professional ornithologists and researchers with an interest in the honeycreepers or in bird ecology, sexual selection, mating behaviour, and nesting biology generally. Amateur ornithologists and naturalists, behaviourists, people interested in evolution and natural history.
